About Me


I am….Rebecca Flansburg, also known as FRANTICMOMMY.

Rebecca Flansburg

I Wear Many Hats:

My name is Rebecca Flansburg (a.k.a Franticmommy) and I am a full-time freelance writer and virtual assistant with an expertise in writing About Pages, Bios, magazine articles, blog posts and press kits. I am proud of my ability to write in a fun, fresh and conversational way that keeps readers engaged, interested and coming back for more.

I am a dedicated mom to two beautiful kids and this site is filled with laughter and love about the joys parenthood. I am also committed to helping women realize their work-from-home dreams, enjoy life beyond the cubicle and find clarity in the work/life/family balance.

I am also the Project Manger for the non-profit children’s literacy initiative, Multicultural Children’s Book Day.

Our mission is to not only raise awareness for the kid’s books that celebrate diversity, but to get more of these of books into classrooms and libraries.

Children’s reading and play advocates Valarie Budayr from Jump Into a Book and Mia Wenjen from PragmaticMom have teamed up to create an ambitious — and much needed — national event. On January 27th five years ago, Jump into a Book and PragmaticMom created the first ever Multicultural Children’s Book Day as a way of celebrating diversity in children’s books.

I am also 1/2 of the UpNorthParent.com team of moms. This adventure with Laura has been my most enjoyable and rewarding one to date.

My Journey

I left my job of 15 years (in an industry I had worked in for 30+ years-YES, I started when I was 16) in 2011 to pursue my new career as a Virtual Assistant and Freelance Writer.
